Swedish clean tech company Swedish Stirling AB is publishing its interim report for the period 01-01-2020 – 30-06-2020 today. The report is available for download in its entirety on the company’s website. Material events during the second quarter include the following: 

  • Total operating income for the quarter was TSEK 11,876 (TSEK 12,303). Earnings per share, before dilution, for the quarter was SEK -0.18 (SEK -0.14).
  • Swedish Stirling is implementing an action program in the light of the Corona pandemic and unrest on the world economy. Re-prioritization and postponements of projects have resulted in immediate savings of 1 MSEK/month. The company’s assessment is therefore that free cash flow will remain positive for the upcoming 18 months.
  • At Swedish Stirling AB’s extraordinary general meeting on 8 April, the board of directors approved the decision to proceed with a convertible bonds issue for a maximum of 100 MSEK with derogation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive rights. The board also decided to amend the company’s Articles of Association as well as elect David Zaudy as a board member.
  • At the general assembly on 24 April 2020, Sven Sahle, Andreas Ahlström, Gunilla Spongh, Erik Wigertz and David Zaudy were re-elected, and Carina Andersson was elected, as board members. Sven Sahle was re-elected Chairman of the Board.
  • The general assembly granted the board authorization to decide on a new share issue. The board is now authorized, within the framework of the Articles of Association, on one or more occasions and until the next annual general meeting, to decide on new share issues with or without derogation from the shareholders’ pre-emption rights. It shall be possible to pass such issue-authorizing resolutions with provisions governing contributions in-kind, set-off or cash payment. The maximum increase in share capital entailed by a share issue pursuant to this authorization shall be 30 percent.
  • The company hired Dennis Andersson as Head of Global Sales and Marketing and as a member of the company’s management team. The recruitment is an important part of the company’s commercial launch of the PWR BLOK.

Material events after the end of the period:
